That is a good point, but it also appears that the behavior of
clone3() is unintentional
here, I'm fairly sure it was meant to be a drop-in replacement for clone() with
additional features.

Not sure what the best fix for this is, as the check for size==0 was clearly
intentional, but seems to prevent this from working. A special flag to ignore
the size, or a magic size value like -1ull might work, but neither of them
is a great interface.
